Here's a tip for digital cameras with CompactFlash (CF) memory cards. Recovery software, such as CardRecovery, can recover deleted photos. It can also read a seemingly corrupted card. This has happened twice to Yours Truly with high-capacity (8GB, 16GB) memory cards. For regular deleted images, the software's great if you are a fast reviewer. Myself, prior to moving files from the camera to the computer, I review the images as stored on the card. It's a fast way to cycle through them. I delete as I go, and some times delete a keeper. Enter the software. It requires a bit of time to run, but it retrieves the picture that was seemingly deleted. In the second scenario, with a corrupted card, the software will recover many but not necessarily all photos. But when shooting with a high-capacity card, with dozens or hundreds of pictures taken, recovering some is certainly better than recovering none!
